Description

URGENT WARNING TO PARENTS! Childproof America is receiving daily calls from parents with children being pursued online through apps like Instagram and Snapchat. The online “friend” claims to be a peer from another state or country. The conversations start off slowly, building trust so the “target” becomes vulnerable and emotionally attached to the “peer”. Parents, these predators are experts at their craft and can get your kid to do things you have warned them about for years. The two goals these predators are working to achieve are

1. Getting your child to trust them enough to send them an inappropriate image of themselves. Once they have this, they can sell it on the black market or try to extort money from your child. They will threaten to make the image public if demands are not met. This is called Sextortion and is a MAJOR problem according to ICAC, Internet Crimes Against Children.

2. They will ask your child to sneak out of the house to meet them to do XYZ.

So learn how to protect your children and the signs to look out for...

In this FREE EVENT we will share invaluable insight on social media safety & social media addiction and how these two issues go hand in hand.

Guest speakers include:

  • Sergeant Luis Menendez with ICAC (Internet Crimes Against Children)

  • Dr. Cassidy Gillaspie, Child/Adolescent Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine

  • Meg Wilson, Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LCDC, LPC, NCC, CCTP

  • Executive Director of Childproof America, Kelly Litvak, will give her presentation on human trafficking and how social media is a gateway to this crime.

  • Beau Abdulla, B. Ed, M.A., Executive Director, Love People Not Pixels

Event is Free to the public but does require registration on Eventbrite for tickets.

Saturday, March 30th, 1pm - 5pm.
